Kamut Flour
0

11 posts in this topic

Hi I made a recipe and used Kamut because it wasn't listed as one of the celiac flours to avoid. However, I read in a book that it contains gluten. Has anyone tried it? Is there anything I can do to help minimize the reaction?

Thanks!

Kamut IS wheat :o

make sure you drink LOTS of water to flush out your system... that's about the only thing I can think of to help.

Thanks so much for the confirmation. I was hoping I was wrong about the Kamut. I just feel overwhelmed with cooking most everything from scratch and starting out. As I was eating the pancakes I said, "I can't tell the difference between it and wheat." I suspect I'm gluten intolerant but I know my daughter is. What a father's day breakfast...I've spent the moring crying about the mistake. My stomach hurts but I'm not sure if it's the worry or the gluten! :D

Thanks again and thanks for the water tip! :)

We really like the "Sylvan Border Farm gluten-free products Wheat free Pancake and wafflle mix. It's a 12 oz bag. www.sylvanborderfarm.com

You don't HAVE to bake and create from scratch just because you're gluten free. I don't. The idea that it's cheaper to cook with mixes doesn't apply to me because I'm not much of a cook. I burn everything. And others end up throwing out more product than they use. Kinnikinnick has great products. Gluten free donuts that are perfectly fine. We add an extra layer of Pillsbury frosting *read containers for gluten-free ones* to give the donuts some more sugar power. And this Cebe bread mix I just got is awesome. SIMPLE recipe. Add a little oil, eggs and cheese...presto. I made garlic bread sticks to go with the Tinkyada spahetti we had and you couldn't tell it wasn't food straight from olive garden.

Take a look at the Celiac.com list of Forbidden Ingredients. It'll list all the other names of wheat or wheat-related grains. Kamut, spelt, semolina, bulgar, einkorn, farina, graham flour, and emmer are all right out. :-)

While pancakes are pretty much just as easy to cook from scratch (there's little difference in measuring out four dry ingredients as opposed to one (the mix)), you don't have to if you don't want to. There are LOTS of pancake mixes available; you just have to find one that you like.

(Of course, I don't mean to imply that other baked goods are just as easily made from scratch - there's a reason there's SO much discussion about bread recipes on this site. ;-) )

Excuse me, but for those who are cooking intolerant, increasing the number of items you have to measure in a recipe increases the chances of excruciating disappointment. For those in whom this cooking intolerance exists, it is best to avoid extreme measuring, multiple ingredients and cooking, if at all possible. ;)

No Kamut as said by many people before me but there are other gluten-free pancake mixes out there.

Sorry, I don't see it. I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm saying I don't see it. Filling one round plastic container from a bag, and dumping it into a bowl doesn't seem extreme in any way to me. I maintain that cooking is a skill that anyone can learn, but I accept that some people don't want to. The thing is, in the case of pancakes, you're talking about either measuring out pancake mix, eggs, and liquid, or measure out flour 1, flour 2, leavening agend, eggs, and liquid. If you're talking about a whole loaf of bread, where the mix has *everything* but the liquid in a "single use" size, saving you from measuring out four flours, two sugars, one or two leavening agents, two liquids, a fat, and any spices, then you're talking about a pretty big difference. Pancakes generally aren't that way.

I guess I just don't understand the force of the words you use: excrutiating and extreme. A mistake in cooking is just a mistake in cooking. I've made some rather horrible things in my time (mmm... straight from the oven to the trash) and it can be disappointing, but if you're trying something you haven't done before, it's important not to set your expectations so high that disappointment is likely.

... ah, I get off topic into a more philosophical realm.

Suffice it to say I don't intened any rudeness, don't understand the line that you've drawn there, and accept that any of the choices along the spectrum of "won't cook to save my life" to "grows everything from the ground up and won't touch a packaged product with a 10 foot pole" may be the right one for any particular individual at any particular stage in their life.

Tarnalberry,

You didn't get it because I was kidding and you took me seriously. :huh:

You're right in that cooking is a learnable skill for everyone, though lack of interest, inability to pay attention to detail and numb taste buds may affect positive outcomes. I think riding a bike is easy enough and learnable to all, though a woman I know just can't do it.....or should I say, doesn't want to learn, won't try and has no interest, just to be clinical about it all?

Tarnalberry,

Sorry, I logged off and was thinking about your passive aggressive post to me and I hopped back on to check if you're the one who was having that passive aggressive back and forth with Eloisa...and it WAS you. (I was lingering on the outskirts of that one, posting about the fact that I'd COOKED rice crispy treats with fruity pebbles.) No surprise, really. Listen, I'm not interested in your clever brand of nastiness. Yes, you're very smart with the cleverly phrased word jabs. Probably never make a spelling, punctuation or grammar mistake. Yes, you probably don't quit til you feel you've soundly beaten down your opponent. Good. You win this one too. My joke sucked. If it had been any good, a smart person like you would have gotten it and laughed a hearty approval. Now leave me alone.

Thanks for the information. I don't know why I didn't see the Kamut on the list. My child is eating so much rice and corn I was looking for some other sustitutes. I must have system overload not to have seen it! I've always enjoyed cooking but now I'm learning to cook in a different way. We've just found out about some food allergies that make things a little more challenging. It's great to know that there are mixes and products for all types of baking etc. I just need to take the stress off for a while instead of trying to be SUPER MOM. :lol:

Thanks again!

    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for the advice Irene. I will look into that book. I know I'm a long away from healed but I got my hopes up when I felt better in that first week, it's just constantly a battle. I am hoping and praying that I get better soon 
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Do you take digestive enzymes and probiotics? That may help. Have you met with a dietician for help figuring out how you're getting glutened?
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      You should read the book' Jennifer's Way" you might find her story similar.  You will find better health- but be patient- it's an up and down road and takes a long time! For me it's been 7-8 months and I'm not well but slowly improving I hope
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Hi Everyone I am new here and wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same thing I am.  I was diagnosed positive for celiac in 2/2016 via biopsy from an endoscopy.  I was negative for blood work because I self-eliminated gluten 9 months prior; so I guess I had not antibodies register in my lab work.  Prior to 2/2016 I was having symptoms for almost an entire year.  Despite cutting out grains in general for 9 months, I would have a gluten attack at least once a month.  I have had a history of sinus, bronchial infection.  I remember as young as 17 getting sick but I always bounced back and was active in sports and working out.  But in the past year I developed the following symptoms - Sudden desire to pass out, nausea, headaches, heart palpitation, crashing exhaustion as if I was recuperating from the flu, wheezing in my chest. I was bounced around to an allergist at this and was told I was asthmatic and I had food sensitivities to dairy, nuts, corn or corn derivatives (including corn syrup) and grains.  so I cut everything out!  Despite cutting everything out I was still have episodes at least monthly, possibly cross contamination.  In April 2015 I traveled to the Carribean for 2 weeks,  I became very ill with a urinary tract infection, stomach bug and severe back pain with constant fever.  I was treated with antibiotics (Bactrim) for 10 days which did clear up the situation. I came home and dismissed everything to a coincidence.  Six weeks later the GI distress woke me up in the middle of night.  The pain was so excruciating that when I sat on the toilet thinking I had to go, I almost past out from the pain.  I lay myself down on the floor until it subsided.  The next day I contacted my primary and was immediately seen.  She referred me to a GI specialist but the appointment was not until August.  Then 2 weeks before my GI appointment they called and rescheduled for late September.  I saw him and by then I was feeling better; no epsides for almost 2 months.  So we did nothing.... boy did I talk to soon.  Immediately after the appointment I had an attack.  These were the symptoms: Nausea, crashing fatigue (as if I was hit with the flu), diarrhea, dizziness,, loss of appetite,  lower back pain, specifically in the middle; intestinal discomfort and body aches which lasted 10 days!! and abruptly disappeared, thank God.
      . I had to wait to see the GI until 1/2016.  Once I saw him he did labs which were all normal.  He checked my liver, kidney, pancreas, blood count which was all normal.  He also scheduled the endo/colonoscopy for end of 1/2016.  Speeding forward in time....since the Endo/Colonscopy procedures, I had attacks January through March which last 7-10 days each time.  I finally had a break for 2 months and today as I type this I am on day 6 of another episode.  What I wanted to see if anyone has experience the following.  For me each episode is getting worse with the following symptoms: Nausea (horrible), back pain on the left side both in the rib cage (the front and back) at times this pain also gravitates toward my left hip.  I also get diarrhea, bloating, intestinal distress, crashing fatigue and loss of appetite.  What really hits me hard is the rib cage pain that is in the front and back on my left side.  I will be seeing the GI doctor in August; but I am hoping to see him sooner Any input in reference to symptoms is appreciated.    
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all  10 weeks ago i was diganoised with celiac with blood work and a endoscopy. I have had the worst 2 years of my life that started with blood being in my stool everyday. I have always suffered with anxiety for as long as I can remember but I always just pushed trough it. I then I started having panic attacks, insomnia and major depression that I could not handle, I could not function, I lost my job because I could not leave my bed, I shaked as I lay in bed everyday uncontrollably. I met with a doctor who put me on lexapro (antidepressant) I finally gave in after 6 months and started taking them, they made me worst than I already was so I had to stop after 14 weeks. Fast forward to 15 months later and the symptoms still persists including the bloody stools, I was in and out of hospital every week and told I had all sorts of conditions, then the blood work and endoscopy Finaly discovered the celiac. I have been on the diet now for 10 weeks, the first week my anxiety went away, the horrible knot in my stomach that I have had everyday, the hot flushes, the tingling I had run trough my legs. This all left but only for a couple of days then it came back, the depression also lifted but has now came back, I have been more than strict with the diet, I check everything twice before I eat it, me and the misses have thrown away everything from our kitchen and replaced it with new things. I had my Vitiam levels checked and I'm deficient in b12, Vit D, all B vitiams. It's like one step Foward 2 steps back in tearms of healing, I know these anxiety / depression feelings are not me but I've had them for so long that I can't seem to see light at the end of the tunnel. The couple of days that they left me when incredible I felt human and alive. Just wondering if any of this has happened to anyone else with celiac or gluten intorlance. Any advice or hope In tearms of healing or am I to feel like this for the rest of my life (I'm 28) by the way. Thanks a lot

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
